I came to restaurant due to the reviews in trip advisor for our wedding anniversary. The food was delicious and the view was gorgeous. We made an early reservation because I wanted to see the sun set, but it was raining and really foggy so I couldn't see anything. When we were about to leave it cleared up a lot... More

This was truly an awesome experience. Getting there was the most difficult part. Great view of the city in the valley and really good food. Staff here was friendly and accommodating. There is also a cultral show that let patrons participate. What a awesome experience. This is a must if you ever visit Costa Rica.

I had to chance to experience a dinner show at Ram Luna. It was outstanding. The food was delicious and the show was exceptional. Even though they had a lot of people, they made you feel special. Really top-notch service and a night I will never forget.

Spur of the moment dinner decision. Little pricey ($40 each) but for the view and the show, it's worth it. This is more than dinner, it's an entire evening event. The restaurant serves really good to great Costa Rican food in a buffet-style and all the drinks you want. The food was good, hot and fresh, but just not that... More

This restaurant is family owned with a great view. It is worth the ride up the hill from San Jose. They have a good selection meat, fish and chicken dishes. They also have a Thursday night Typical night with a show, the $50 price is a bit high, but worth seeing one time. You can also order off the menu... More

Mountain restaurant and lookout point with an excellent view of the capital city of San José, the city of Heredia, Tres Ríos, Aserrí and the Irazú Volcano. Located at 5870 feet above sea level, with 2 fireplaces and decorated like home it has a cozy and warm ambiance. An outside patio with an open firepit and park benches around, attracts those who likes to take pictures of the scenery. With 49 years in business, now we have a menu that combines the best of Costa Rica and international cuisine and a selected list of wines. The Ram Luna was initiated by the family Ramírez Aguilar, Gilber and Moraima, who still live in the property and keep running the restaurant.
